From our sources inside of the motherboard industry, manufacturers have been extremely disappointed in Intel's 915/925/945/955 Chipsets as they don't offer any SIGNIFICANT performance improvements over Intel's famed i875P (Canterwood) Chipset. With this said, many of these manufacturers have turned to offering a wealth of additional onboard features to compensate for the lackluster performance and as an incentive for enthusiasts, and any end-users, to purchase their motherboards. Although Intel's upcoming i975 Chipset should share a different story once it reaches the market, until then motherboard manufacturers will continue to overwhelm their products with additional accessories and features while some motherboard manufacturers such as DFI and Albatron have virtually stopped adopting Intel's latest Chipsets for the time being. The motherboard we have in front of us today is the ASUS P5LD2 Deluxe WiFi+TV edition, which utilizes the i945P (Lakeport) Chipset and a superfluous amount of additional features.
